Petition to Stop Live Animal Export

To The Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled:

The Petition of the undersigned protests in the strongest possible terms against the live-export of Australian animals.

During transportation the animals are subjected to inhumane conditions resulting in unacceptably high death rates and suffering. Upon arrival, they suffer extreme cruelty and barbarism prior to and during slaughter - practices that are illegal in Australia.

Your petitioners call upon the members of the Senate to immediately, and without delay, ban the live export of Australian livestock.

This is the second round of the petition. Signatures from the first round were archived and can be viewed here.)

2016-11-17 Jennifer Honickman United States Animals are in misery while exported, they stand packed into a truck in freezing cold and unbearable heat. Some become frozen to the side of the truck. Stop torturing animals for profit. We don't need to eat meat or wear leather.

2016-02-11 Diana Brandenburg Australia Why is this barbaric trade still allowed, why doesn't Parliament look at the footage from overseas to see for themselves what happens to these poor animals when they are slaughtered...this is a cruel trade and it's time for a complete ban on live export...so come on lets just do it !

2016-02-09 Amy Scott England Live export is the worst area for cruelty in the meat industry. Conditions are never acceptable to ensure animals don't suffer, and the destinations usually have horrific records for abusing the animals they receive. So many die en route and it has to stop.

YOUR LAWS, RESTRICTIONS, REQUIREMENTS, FURTHER TRAINING AND OVERSIGHT ARE INEFFECTUAL! The savage brutality of viciously slaughtering fully conscious Australian animals overseas continues - even after years of your government pretending to care. Your exporters - whose animals leave the approved facilities (which is inconsistent with Exporter Supply Chain Assurance System [ESCAS] requirements) - regularly and routinely conspire with unscrupulous foreign buyers - whose handling and slaughter is not consistent with World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) standards. THESE - AND OTHER - ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES WILL NEVER END UNTIL YOU PERMANENTLY BAN LIVE EXPORT.

2015-05-15 Michele Lovel Australia I will only make my comments short as I would need a lot more pages to record my strong views on this barbaric practice. It breaks my heart that in 2015 we are still closing our eyes to the cruelty that's going on only to make a bit more money. I'm pleased to see how many visitors to this country have signed the petition. Things MUST CHANGE and people have to acknowledge the problem before it can be fixed. But until then I suppose we will just "sweep it under the carpet" and tell the world what a lucky country we have.
2015-05-15 Gail Miller United States Please STOP THE LIVE EXPORT OF ANIMALS who are so horribly and cruelly treated and killed. This is not the way a civilized people treats its animals. Please don't contribute to their suffering.

How it destroys the tenderness with which we should regard those creatures of God! Animals are often transported long distances and subjected to great suffering in reaching a market. Taken from the green pastures and traveling for weary miles over the hot, dusty roads, or crowded into filthy cars, feverish and exhausted, often for many hours deprived of food and water, the poor creatures are driven to their death, that human beings may feast on the carcasses.__Ellen White

2014-06-25 Monica USA "The moral progress of a nation can be measured in how it treats its animals" -- Mahatma Gandhi. Humans must strive to be compassionate caregivers, protectors and stewards of the planet and its beings. Helping not harming. To create an environment where all sentient beings are treated with compassion and respect. Never to die needlessly or cruelly. These vulnerable, innocent, sensitive beings have the right to live cruelty-free in peace.

2014-02-24 Linda Nowicki United States I, like people world-wide, are increasingly aware of the plight of animals being abused and used as inanimate objects and subjected to horrendous suffering like live export to countries with even less protection for animals. It is a shame for us to see Australia in such a bad light of live animal export, knowing these animals will not only suffer or die during transport, but will be tortured when arriving at the country of destination. I, like all animal lovers around the world do respectly ask that you abandon this practice, and protect the animals of your country and do what is right. Thank you in advance.
2014-02-23 Shelley Thomas CANADA I think it is about time this cruelty stopped. Set your ego aside and realize that animals are sentinent beings and should not be subjected to any sort of cruelty, including live export. They feel like we do. They should not be treated as commodities and without thought to their welfare. Where is the compassion? As a human race it is sad to see we've lost ourselves in the quest for money.... greed. Please do the right thing with the power you have. Don't abuse it. Use it.... to make a positive change for animals. Thank you Shelley Thomas

2013-12-31 Trish Brown AUSTRALIA This disgustingly cruel and immoral trade that takes jobs from Australian abattoirs and gives them to overseas butchers who have very little or no skills to slaughter animals under humane conditions has got to be one of the worst decisions ever made by Australian governments in the past 40 years...Both the Liberal and labour parties running our country are short-sighted and totally ignorant as well as deliberately ignoring the wishes of the majority of people not only here in Australia but in countries overseas who want to see this barbaric trade come to an end and have it replaced with a chilled or frozen exported product that will increase jobs here and NOT OVERSEAS!!!!

2013-12-19 Deb Roberts Australia For animals, a step onto a live export ship can lead to a most cruel and brutal fate. We know, because 35 investigations have revealed what the industry doesnt want the public to see. When Animals Australias first Indonesian live export investigation was aired on Four Corners, a massive public outcry forced the Australian government to regulate the live trade for the very first time. New rules made exporting harder, more expensive, and fewer animals today endure this journey. But the cruelty continues. These rules still allow the fully conscious slaughter of millions of animals exported from our shores every year, condemning them to a painful and prolonged death. Whats more subsequent investigations consistently reveal exporters willingness to flout the rules and breach regulations that were designed to protect animals from the worst abuses of live export.
2013-12-19 Marianne Hutchison United Kingdom Please immediately, and without delay BAN All live export of Australian livestock.

2013-11-23 Robyn lynch Australia ()this cruel act against animals must stop now!!!!! :-(
2013-11-21 Penelope Marshall Australia Live animal exports must STOP. We should grow & slaughter these animals humanely & export ourselves. Australia must take responsibility & control the conditions & the treatment of these animals.This is better for Australia & in the best interest of the animals. Every year millions of Australian animals are exported live for slaughter. Those who survive the journey often endure brutal treatment and conscious slaughter. Cattle, sheep and goats are sent throughout the Middle East and South East Asia, to countries with no laws to protect them from cruelty. Tens of thousands of animals don't survive the sea journey and those that do disembark into countries where they are transported, handled and then slaughtered in appalling ways. Most animals slaughtered overseas have their throats cut while they are fully conscious, leading to an incredibly frightening, painful and prolonged death. Despite the fact the government's new regulations have now been implemented in every export market (except Egypt), shocking cruelty continues to be exposed, including in Turkey, Indonesia, Kuwait, Qatar, Pakistan, Israel, Mauritius and Egypt. In every export market that Animals Australia has investigated, we have uncovered cruelty. Read more Beaten, stabbed and buried alive in Pakistan In October 2012, live exporters lost control of a shipload of 21,000 sheep in Pakistan, when local authorities ordered they be slaughtered on mass. In one of the live export industry's worst live export disasters to date, animals were dragged, beaten, their throats were sawn at with blunt knives before they were tossed into mass graves, some still alive hours later. What this tragic incident made abundantly clear is that no amount of regulations will ever guarantee animals' welfare in this industry.
2013-11-14 Irene Lovelee Enough of this disgusting animal cruelty. It breaks your heart to see this is still happening. Stop exporting right now and be a voice for the animals. Thank you.

2013-11-07 Caroline Sdergren SWEDEN I was shocked to see new footage revealing yet more cruelty in the live export trade. Overwhelmingly Australians want live export to end and were appalled when the trade to Indonesia was reopened. The Gillard government promised us that new regulations would ensure that cattle would no longer be subjected to cruel treatment. Already we know that this isn't the case. Once again we are seeing the most appalling evidence emerging from Indonesia of cattle being brutalised. The images from Indonesia of animals being killed whilst fully conscious reflect a brutal practice that will never be accepted by the Australian public. It's time for the government to stop supporting an industry that has demonstrated time and time again that it cannot be trusted. I urge you to represent the views of your constituents and demand that the government acts to end live export.

The cruelty will keep happening while you send our animals to places with no animal protection laws to protect them. Putting them on these death ships is disgraceful, then the one that survive the long journey are made to suffer extreme cruelty prior and during slaughter. How much pain and fear do our animals have to endure before you put a stop to this. The people that can help, turn a blind eye and say things are getting better. What a joke. In fact it could not be worse. Ban Live Export and do the right thing!
2013-09-02 Jeromie Williams Australia I dont have much to say but all i am saying is shame on you. Shame on you all.

Cattle, sheep and goats are individual, sentient creatures that experience fear and pain. Shame on you.

2013-05-15 shelly cowan Austalia I have never believed in live export of any animals plus the terrible treatment they suffer is totally uncalled for and needs to be stopped immediately. These animals are raised to put food on peoples tables and should be treated with respect and a humane death.
2013-05-15 Michelle Sibinovic I speak on behalf of millions of concerned citizens all over the world who are horrified by the barbaric cruelty, torture, abuse and killing of live export animals arriving from Australia to locations in the Middle East and Africa. Australia must suspend the practice of sending live animals to horrific slaughterhouses where crush boxes and other methods of inhumanity are used to sacrifice and kill these beings whilst still conscious. Until the welfare of these creatures is fully protected, send no more to horrifying and abusive abbatoirs.
2013-05-15 ALEXANDRA MCMILLAN UNITED KINGDOM CRUEL AND DISTRESSING ABUSE, FOR THESE POOR ANIMALS. THIS MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO HAPPEN!!!!
2013-05-15 MARINA MURPHY UNITED KINGDOM I plead with you to PLEASE STOP the live-export of Australian animals! These animals are extremely suffering: being subjected to inhumane conditions and barbaric cruelty before and during slaughter! Please answer WHY do you export poor, innocent animals so that they are exposed to this Abhorrent, Cruel, Agonizing Torture and ultimate death when, in Australia, such practices are 'AGAINST THE LAW'. I sincerely urge you to LISTEN to the MANY voices of this petition! These animals are helpless in their lonely, immense suffering - they are unable to speak out and defend themselves - PLEASE LISTEN TO THE VOICES OF THE MANY HERE AND PLEASE PLEASE STOP THIS BARBARIC CRIME NOW!!

Please stop this trade, I feel so depressed just thinking about the poor animals, even the trip in the boat is horrendous let alone what happens when they get to these countries.comments here)
2013-05-11 Daniel United States Nonhuman animals, like human animals, are sentient beings that deserve to be treated with compassion and respect---not brutal cruelty. They experience agony and fear---just like us---when they are mangled by blades, deprived of their young, and chained to machines of exploitation. The heinous suffering they are forced to endure in Australia's live export trade is a shameful blight upon the Australian nation. "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated."---Mahatma Gandhi

IT HAS TO STOP NOW!!! THERE'S NO EXCUSE FOR ABUSE. ALL ANIMALS FEEL PAIN, I'VE SEEN THE PICTURES, JUST CANNOT WATCH THE VIDEOS. HOW CAN OUR POLITICIANS CONTINUE TO SEND LIVESTOCK TO BARBARIC REGIONS WHERE 'ANIMALS' TREAT OUR ANIMALS WITH HIDEOUS DISRESPECT THROUGH HEINOUS PRACTICES WHICH ARE ABSOLUTELY INSANE!! COULD OUR GOVERNMENT WATCH THEIR OWN PETS GO THROUGH THE SAME TREATMENT AND NOT DO ANYTHING?? THIS IS HUMILIATING TO OUR COUNTRY AND SENDS A MESSAGE TO FOREIGNERS THEY CAN DO WHATEVER THEY PLEASE TO OUR LIVESTOCK! WE HAVE TO STOP SENDING THEM N O W!!!! IT'S INSANE THAT PEOPLE WHO RUN OUR COUNTRY EAT A NICE RUMP FOR DINNER, MOSEY OFF TO BED KNOWING DAMN WELL WHAT IS HAPPENING TO OUR LIVESTOCK. I'VE TRIED TO IMAGINE THESE THINGS BEING DONE TO ME AND I BREAK DOWN. OUR ANIMALS NEED OUR VOICE TO SPEAK ON THEIR BEHALF, IT'S THE ONLY WAY THIS WILL WORK. SEND FROZEN MEAT ONLY!!! WHILE EVER WE SEND LIVESTOCK OVERSEAS, IT WILL N E V E R END - AND THAT'S THE BLOODY TRUTH. SHAME ON ALL POLITICIANS THAT SUPPORT AND ENDORSE SENDING ANIMALS AS LIVESTOCK. I DON'T CARE WHO PROMISES WHAT OVERSEAS, THEY'RE BLOODY LIARS. I CANNOT GET MY MESSAGE ACROSS STRONGLY ENOUGH. RIGHT NOW I AM DAMN ASHAMED TO BE AUSTRALIAN.

2013-05-06 Sharron Jenkinson Australia Is there no end to the extremes by which man continues his senseless and greed invoked cruelty upon not only farm animals but domestic pets and international wildlife. Without the ability to display compassion, respect and kindness towards the animals that share our plant we will never achieve peace with one another.
2013-05-06 ann howard australia animals are sentient beings. If we have to kill and eat them, the process should be as humane as possible Not only is it horrible for the animals, it takes away our human dignity. These perpetrators overseas can do what they like to a frozen carcass.
2013-05-06 Jan Booker Western Australia I am totally sickened and dismayed by the ongoing cruelty to Australian farm animals in middle eastern abattoirs and call on the Government to either end it or start phasing it out.
2013-05-06 Sheryl Bull-Collins Australia Enough of this disgusting practice - these are innocent lives and deserve more respect - in this day and age it is totally unacceptable that cruelty of this magnitude is not only occurring but is being condoned by the Australian Government - the only good thing Julia Gillard has done since being in power was to stop llive exports to Indonesia but unfortunately did not ban it permanently and now Egypt is doing the same - seriously listen to the general population who you are meant to be representing for a change.

2013-05-04 Maria Canning Australia Stop live animal export now! It's inhumane and disgusting and I fail to understand how any human being can condone this practice. Has the almighty dollar become our god to the point that we can allow any sentient being to suffer this horrendous torture? Right now I am ashamed to call myself an Australian and this once great country should hang it's head in shame. My vote at the next election most certainly will not be given to any Government that aligns itself with this horrendous trade agreement.
2013-05-04 Nicole Gerschman Australia The animals that are exported all over the world, and are often sent to countries that have been proven to abuse, torture and painfully slaughter innocent animals in the most inhumane standards are reason enough that they do not deserve these exports. Live animal export needs to be abolished immediately!

2013-04-09 Renee Vincent United States Animals are not objects, but living, breathing, living beings. Are you aware that on July 7, 2012 a group of science leaders gathered, including Stephen Hawking, in the UK? They all publicly announced, "Humans are not the only conscious beings; other animals, specifically mammals and birds, are indeed conscious, too." (http://www.earthintransition.org/2012/07/scientists-declare-nonhuman-animals-are-conscious/) Neuroscientists and experts in the fields of marine mammals, birds and cephalopods signed a declaration to this consensus. As Professor Marc Beckoff, of the University of Colorado, states, "We should all take this opportunity to stop the abuse of millions upon millions of conscious animals in the name of science, education, food, clothing and entertainment. We owe it to them to use what we know on their behalf and to factor compassion and empathy into our treatment of them. (http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg21528836.200-animals-are-conscious-and-should-be-treated-as-such.html). Now you know. STOP the Export of Live Animals.

2012-12-11 Linda Burges Australia (New Zealand has led the way to banning live exports, why doesn't our government have the balls to do it. You need to watch the barbaric cruelty inflicted on this poor Australian animal in an Israeli abattoir. How could any politician with any conscience allow live exports to continue. Not only is the transportation cruel... Animals being left at sea for lengthy periods. The recent atrocities in Pakistan. The treatment of this poor animal makes me want to vomit. Disgusting!! If the politicians want any respect from the Australian public, they need to grow some balls and stand up for these innocent creatures who have no voice, except for pitiful screams when being tortured stick the prod up his arse thatll make him move, haha. How can they bury their head in the sand and allow this to happen?! Kosher killing in Australia is possible and would create jobs. Watch this video and see for your own eyes what is happening.

2012-11-05 Marise Williams Australia Stop this immediately. Our humanity is measured by the way in which we treat animals. The practice of live animal export makes religious practices and economics morally and ethically bankrupt.

2012-11-05 Patricia Farrar Australia Live animal export should be banned. Why are we pandering to some whacky religious practice founded on superstition? Profit and prophet, that's why.
2012-11-05 Luciana Nadalin Australia Either a solution must be found to GUARANTEE (no chance of further "isolated" mistreatment incidents) the humane treatment of animals exported, or export must cease because no amount of export revenue can justify animal mistreatment!

2012-11-05 Rob Wall Australia Enough is enough. This barbaric trade should cease now. I pledge my vote for any party who stands for stopping the export of live animals. We had a viable packaged meat export prior to live export. We are not a poor country having to trade animal cruelty for dollars.

2012-10-12 Jeanette Anne Browne Australia Please I beg of you to stop the live animal export from Australia.

2012-10-01 Nidhi Verma Australia I cannot believe the Australian government has continued with live export cattle trade in spite of the shocking videos over the past year. This if nothing else proves our politicans are heartless bastards only willing to work for profit and greed. STOP THIS DISGUSTING TRADE NOW - my vote will lie with the party which ends live cattle exports! Shame on you that is continues today - Mr Ludwig you will surely pay for your utter lack of conscientious one way or another. Your lack of empathy for animals makes you unfit to be Minister for Agriculture. I hope you are sacked from the position as soon as possible. Increase jobs in australia by processing the animals here - subsidise the increased labor cost of doing it in Australia if you must.

Ordinary Australians have been fighting this brutal trade for years and we are tired of the same old excuses! Nothing can excuse the horrendous treatment of these animals NOTHING! This trade is all about PROFIT and it is insanely cruel. SHAME SHAME SHAME. We need a government that puts an end to the Live Export Trade. Live Export is a DISGRACEFUL practice and EVERBODY knows that, even the people who are filling their wallets with the blood money that it earns them. We will never give up until it is BANNED
2012-06-02 michael alvarez-toye canada animal welfare is at a critical juncture, where awareness now means taking action to halt the barbarism that takes place within animal industries, in particular regarding the exportation of living beings. so much horror and cruelty occurs-and it must be halted now!

2012-04-29 Maddison Australia Live animal exports to Indonesia is horrific. I chose it as a school essay topic. I wish more young people were informed about this issue. Animals are no different to humans, the only difference is that they don't have a voice. We need to be their voice. As soon as I heard about this, I donated all the money I had earned to the RSPCA Live Animal Exports. It's too important to ignore. I can't believe our Government has let this still go on, more people need to be informed to stop this horrific trade.

2012-03-16 Penny Marshall Australia Test Your Knowledge..... The Bull Who Cried: Knowing it was about to be slaughtered, a bull in Hong Kong did what many people fail to realize or are skeptic about when it comes to animals - he showed emotion. As reported by "Weekly World News", a group of workers walked a bull to a packaging factory. They were about to slaughter him to make steaks and beef stews. When they were close to the front door of the slaughter house, the sorrowful bull suddenly stopped going forward and knelt down on his two front legs. The bull... was all in tears. How did he know he was going to get killed before he entered the slaughter house? He is even smarter than people. Mr. Shiu, a butcher recalled, "When I saw this kind of so-called "stupid" animal sobbing and with his eyes in fear and sorrow, I started trembling." "I called the rest over to see. They were just as surprised. We kept pushing the bull forward, but he just didn't want to move and sat there crying." Billy Fong, owner of the packaging factory said, "People thought animals didn't cry like human beings. However that bull really sobbed like a baby." At that time, more than ten strong men witnessed the scene and they were all touched. Those who were responsible for slaughtering even felt more touched and teared as well. Other workers working at the same slaughter house also came to see the crying bull. It was all packed with people. They were all shock by this scene. Three of them said they would never forget this crying bull when they slaughter other animals. With both man and animal crying, everyone knew that nobody could kill the bull. The problem was, what should they do with him? In the end, they raised funds to buy this crying bull and sent him to a temple, where the kind monks would take care of him for life. After the workers had made a decision, a miracle happened. A worker said, "When we promised this bull that we will not kill him, he started moving and followed us." How did he understand people's words? Mr. Shiu said "Believe it or not? This is real although it sounds unbelievable." No doubt, this bull changed these butchers' lives. Hopefully this story has in turn changed yours. Shared from a friends Face Book link....
2012-03-14 Katherine H. Australia If you've seen the videos of what happens to animals whilst and after being transported, you will realise how disgusting Live Animal Exportation is. If you have trouble sympathizing, simply picture ourself as the one being kicked to enhance strangulation. There is no excuse, and if you think money is one, then you shouldn't be on this planet
2012-03-14 Shirley Jordan UK There is no reason or excuse for animal cruelty of any kind. Exporting animals causes great suffering to them as does the brutality of slaughter, especially ritual slaughter which is a total disgrace. All animals deserve better!
2012-03-11 Beatrice Baxter United Kingdom It is the requirement of halal slaughter that the animals are alive so that blood can flow. This barbaric practice is abhorrent.

2011-09-09 CAROLYN COOPER THERE ARE SO MANY REASONS WHY THIS TRADE SHOULD BE STOPPED. ANIMALS ARE LIVING BEINGS AND FOR SOME REASON (MANY) HUMAN BEINGS THINK THAT THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO WHAT EVER IS NECESSARY TO MAKE BUCK. FROM THIS AND OTHER INDUSTRIES INVOLVING ANIMALS I AM DISGUSTED AND TOTAL HORRIFIED AT HOW PEOPLE THINK !!!! HUMAN BEINGS SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES.

2011-09-07 Chantelle Bolam Australia Live export trade is cruel, unnecessary, and greedy, END LIVE EXPORT or at least begin to phase it out, create more jobs within australia by processing livestock here, its what the australian people want!

2011-09-07 Jacqueline Batt United Kingdom Stop this unecessary cruelty now. What these poor animals have to endure is beyond comprehension.
2011-09-07 Ellie England I find it sickening how animals are treated in this world and the sooner it stops the better! We need to make it illegal here too! Or swap the animals with thugs and offenders!!
2011-09-06 Kyffin Hammond-Chate Australia
2011-09-06 Jill Warren United Kingdom This is barbaric and so unnecessary when the animals can be humanely destroyed before being transported.
2011-09-06 Nancy Bowring England Packing hundreds of sheep tightly together and forcing them to endure thousands of miles in pergatory is a crime against humanity and must be stopped without delay.
2011-09-06 Linda UK I find it hard to believe that you Australians are so cruel to animals. What is it with you? Not allowed to be cruel to the indigenous people anymore so you exercise your cruel natures on God's animals. All people engaging in these disgusting practices should should be forced to experience them themselves.
2011-09-06 JOHN CRIPPS ENGLAND I am completely against the live exports being sent from the port of Ramsgate. Very badly treated, we have a responsibility for the well fare of these dumb creatures that have to give up their lives to feed us, this torturous treatment involved in their live export process must be stopped.

2011-09-04 Holly Australia STOP LIVE EXPORT I have reseached it for school and it is vile if it doesn't stop then this a crule world, and to let it keep on going for so long. Up to thousands of sheep die on the trip over there and the ones that dont get killed get killed in the Middle East and East Asia in ways that are illegal in Australia and is unbelievable. It's grows with what they do to the poor sheep just cause it has to be Halaled meat.. >:(
2011-09-02 Elise Australia The way these animals are being treated is absolutely disgusting! Animals, just like human beings, have feelings, and they should be treated humanely. What I am hearing about the way they are being treated makes me feel sick!
2011-09-01 Helen Jennings Australia I have come to realise that all living creatures have an intrinsic right to be treated with respect. Their suffering in abattoirs especially in less developed countries is a violation of their rights. Perhaps we should be instigating legislation to assist us and the rest of the world to move towards more humane animal slaughtering conditions for a start.
2011-09-01 Janine Robertson Australia You must stop this cruel and shocking industry...ban live export NOW!!!!!!
2011-08-29 Eliza Morse Australia This is wrong. And I want to make a difference for the beings we heartlessly slaughter for our own benefit.
2011-08-28 Katherine Stainsby Australia I'm completely against intensive farming and live animal exports.
2011-08-27 Kathryn Woolfe Australia Three decades of animal abuse provide their own evidence, the live export industry must be banned.Australians are outraged by the monumental cruelty meted out to countless millions of animals. The politicians, the MLA, and others with vested interests, are the only people who want live exports to continue. The Australian public want Live Exports banned. We demand an end to the cruelty.
2011-08-27 Elaine Swords Australia It is sickening that money comes before cruelty !!!
2011-08-26 susanne schmalisch egbringhoff deutschland
2011-08-26 Charlie Williams USA, Michigan Please stop this inhumane method of slaughter. I encourage you to follow New Zealand's lead. If Australia would establish their own slaughter houses with "Best Practices" and humane slaughter it would reflect well upon the country. I ask you to "DO THE RIGHT THING" morally and ethically, do it for the animals sake and for the conscience of the Australian people. The world is watching and will not let this pass...I assure you. Thank You....the decision is easy, don't let big business influence your moral decision. Charlie Williams 8010 Greenfield Shores Scotts, Michigan 49088 USA

2011-08-24 annabel.leonard-schulz australia we all know that people wil always eat meat so the killing of animals for human consumption will always be.BUT in saying that the animals to be slaughtered are australian breed,born & raised so let them be killed in the own country where slaughter houses can be easily monitored. Exporting our live animals to the middle east & asia means a journey of pain, stress & suffering to be followed by brutal barbaric & cruel manhandling up until their slaughter. These are 2 countries wher animals are nothing but a commodity or objects to devour. Animals dont register on any scale of care over there and that has been reported, on numerous occassions. We to take a stand and demand that our animals deserve the best that australia can do for them and thats not sending them over seas to be brutally butchered!!!

2011-08-21 Fran Radnor Australia I am ABSOLUTELY ASHAMED to admit I am an Australian! Wake up Julia Gillard! New Zealand ceased this barbaric trade years ago why cant we? Many Australians think we send our animals to backward countries WE are the backward ones living in the Dark Ages! Ban Live Export!
2011-08-20 Geoffrey Grace Australia Live sheep exports should be immediately halted until destination abbatoirs are fully accredited by a credible independant authority cerifies they are a humane animal handler. The dreadful treatment of any live animal exported from Australia should be stopped.
2011-08-20 Elissa Walsh Australia Am ashamed to be Australian, this has got to stop. How we treat animals is a reflection of US.
2011-08-19 Nadia Walters Australia Australia is not known to be a cruel country, let's keep it that way. STOP ANY LIVE EXPORTS!!

2011-08-16 Terri Lowe Australia Perhaps you could assist the farmers who currently profit from this barbaric trade with diversifying to a more humane form of produce.
2011-08-16 Krystal Australia I would happily kill one of those bastards who is hurting the animals. The government is so screwed knowing this was going on and is only now looking at it. But still undecided whether it should stop or not is unbeleivable. Its disgusting there blood is on our hands.
2011-08-16 Karen Squire Australia (Stop live exports now)
2011-08-14 Joseph Packness Australia Stop live exports and sell the meat from Australia as this will allow more employment for us Australians. Plus we will know that the animals are being treated humanely.
2011-08-14 Helen Jacques Australia If you can't hear the animals' voices then hear ours. Live animal exports have to stop. It's an embarassment to Australia.
2011-08-13 Michael Chilcott Australia Ending the live exports, even at our own cost, will prove that our society is beginning to move forward, that our morals have come a long way from the dark ages.

2011-08-10 Amanda Johnson Australia
2011-08-07 John Allen Australia The live export trade is a trade in misery. You cannot guarantee animals will be treated well when you ship thousands overseas. Many also die on the voyage.
2011-07-30 PAULINE SIMMONDS AUSTRALIA
2011-07-23 Anne Australia We call on the Government to immediately halt the live export of Australian animals to Indonesia and move towards an end to all live exports of Australian animals within 3 years. A huge public outcry right now, while the Government and the public are paying close attention, can ensure that not one more ship loaded with Australian cattle is allowed to leave an Australian port bound for Indonesia. If you've seen the horrific footage of cattle being TORTURED in Indonesian abattoirs you'll know there is simply no room for more excuses from an industry that has had over a decade to fix this problem. www.getup.org.au/campaigns/animals/live-export/ban-live-export Our campaigners are in Canberra tonight with experts from the RSPCA and Animals Australia. The Agriculture Minister has already started to walk back from his previous support for live exports -- but another inquiry or investigation isn't enough. It's time to end live exports. Please join the campaign and forward this email to friends and family. Thanks for taking a stand,
2011-07-21 maryanne Australia PLEASE STOP THIS BARBARIC TRADE. STOP OUR ANIMALS FROM BEING TORTURED AND BRUTALIZED.

2011-07-06 Robyn Cook Australia I also would like to ban any form of ritual killing in this country - its 2012 and the standards need to be raised no matter what your beliefs are.
2011-07-06 Patricia Porter Australia Shame on our government, it took months to come to a decision regarding Carbon tax (still no clarity on this ) but it took only a few hours for the prime minister to back flip after vowing in parliament she would not allow it unless.... she gave heaps of great reasons why not to , unfortunately Canberra has buckled under the loss of the mighty dollar, a price will have to be paid (KARMA)
2011-07-01 Maddison Canuto Australia Pain doesnt just belong to the human race.
2011-06-29 Joan Legg Australia The six month ban on live export must be extended forever and to all countries. We cannot expect to have any influence over another country as has been proven by Indonesia's refusing access to their abattoirs for inspections now. MLA cannot be trusted ever again to be truthful, the only solution is an end to this disgusting trade.
2011-06-29 Chris Stanek Australia Please stop Live Exports. NOW!
2011-06-28 judith tomlin australia please to those in power, use your power for good not evil, do the right thing and ban live export now, forever, to all countries.

2011-06-25 tony curtis australia The offshore inhumane slaughter of this trade has sometimes been suspended for a suitably polite period after which everybody picks up where they left off amid grandiose claims that steps have been taken, training initiated, protocols established, reports written and people admonished. There follows a period of silence until the next investigation that unfathomably but invariably finds more of the same!

2011-06-22 Cassandra Cartwright Australia I think that it is a disgrace to inhumanely torcher animals. The government should be ashamed subjecting our animals to such cruelty just for a buck. The footage which has been televised is barbarick and horribly cruel. I can't believe we subject our innocent animals to such barbarism and cruelty. These practices are illegal here so why are we subjecting our animals to go through these conditions somewhere else?. What else is disturbing is Australians use sheep and cattle for wool and milk and then send them overseas to be torchered and cruely killed.

2011-06-20 Karin Scanlon Australia Why is it that the dollar speaks volumes and live animal export has been allowed to go on ? We are dealing with animals and their well being and their feelings.

No amount of money nor good will can excuse such depravity nor those who help it along...namely AUSTRALIA!!! It brings nothing but shame upon the heads of every Australian to allow and condone such inhumanity! Its a national disgrace!
2011-06-15 Kathryn Keen Australia This is a cruel trade that has destroyed local industries. Ban the live exports & bring back jobs for Australians, whilst enabling proper oversight & controls to ensure Australian welfare standards are met. It's the obvious solution. NZ has already led the way in this & shown it can be done without harming the beef industry.
2011-06-15 Sharon Andrews Australia I want live export stopped. It is cruel and unnecessary. Technology has come so far yet Australia is still going ahead with this barbaric practice. Yep Australia's shame all right. Let's follow NZ and refuse to do it.

2011-06-14 Wendy Bowring Australia (I am shocked, horrified and sickened by the way animals are treated in Indonesian abattoirs. I cannot understand how any person could knowingly send an animal to such a fate. A few years ago it was Egypt, which now imports chilled or frozen beef. Let us follow New Zealand's good example and not export live animals for slaughter overseas.)
2011-06-14 Lee McKay Australia No amount of money or job losses can justify this cruel and abhorrent trade. LiveCorp, MLA, the farmers and the government should hang their heads in collective shame.
2011-06-14 Lindel Barker Australia I have been writing to the Government for years about this wickedly cruel live animal trade. Now the general public's attention has been gained.

2011-06-12 Pam Fioretti Australia NO live animal exports, to ANY country. We have no control over the cruelty, live export costs Australian jobs, and it has been shown that processing in Australia adds to our economy.

2011-06-12 Kelly McBride AUSTRALIA Australia has no control over animal rights laws overseas. Time to stop sending our creatures to a place where we can't protect their welfare and leave them open to torture and cruel acts. Animals have feeling and DO FEEL PAIN! Even the animals that people eat deserve respect and a death that is as pain free as possible. We can not provide these standards of animal rights in another country. Happy to support a tax payer subsidy to support farmers find another way to make an income when we end this. WE MUST END IT!!! LIVE ANIMAL EXPORTS, DON'T SUSPEND IT END !!!!!!

2011-06-12 Julie Biddulph Australia I am against the export of live animals. It would be more economical and create jobs within Australia if you were to stop the export of live animals.

2011-06-12 Anissa Jones Australia No matter what slant people want to put on it to justify having live animal exporting, its wrong in everyway possible! We have an obligation as a society (worldwide) to protect any living creature from undue pain and suffering. The live animal export is AGAINST all that is morally and ethically right. It has been going on for way too long, enough is enough. Countries that we export to do not have any protection for animals and therefore we should not be supporting these barbaric acts to continue by supplying. Globally we have a responsibility to be humane. If anyone even thinks that supporting live animal exports is ok, they need to re-think as there is no need for it in this day and age. This practice must stop immediately - ban ALL live animal exports!

Please stop live export of Australian animals, and give a clear signal to us here in New Zealand to follow suit and ensure that our animals are being treated with respect.

2011-06-08 Sarah UK People get away with hurting animals like this because nobody stops them, and everyone lets it go unpunished simply because the animal can't speak. It can't vocally defend its self. By the same merit, don't you think that since it cant physically defend itself that this is a more serious crime than anyone seems to think? I'm honestly ashamed of those workers, and ashamed of the live stock trade for sending cattle to places they're treated like this.

2011-06-07 Lenny Rose Australia Live export, usually ends in brutal and barbaric death, please stop this now. We must kill them here then export! Australia is the only country in the southern hemisphere to export without foot and mouth disease, so we hold much sway!
2011-06-07 elizabeth mccasker australia Until the live export trade is banned completely I will petition, protest, email and phone my local MP, State Senator and the Australian Prime Minister. It is reprehensible that "we" have allowed this trade to go on for almost 20 years even though the evidence was there that atrocities were being perpetrated against these animals all along. No one in our government or the MLA took an ethical stance. The only consideration seems to be the dollar. 9 days after some of the footage from these slaughterhouses has been viewed and the Australian public is yet to hear from their Prime Minister. It is time for the live export trade to stop.

2011-06-04 Steve Hammond Australia After witnessing the brutal handling and torture of our Australian cattle in Indonesia, I am petitioning the Government every way I can to Ban live export and rejuvinate the Australian abatoir Industry. I have been asking for a study into an Abatoir also in the NT or top of WA to process meat for Indonesian markets. Halal could be used in the humane way and meat exported frozen. The $5 levy per head farmers currently give to livecorp could go to your industry or to installing refridgeration in processed meat recieving areas throughout Indonesia. Supporting you all the way lets create jobs for Australians in the meat industry and ban live export for good. Steve Hammond INGHAM FNQ
2011-06-04 Clare Williams Australia After witnessing the horrendous treatment of Australian cattle in Indonesia, I am appalled that this cruelty has been allowed to continue for so long. While the live export industry turns a blind eye to animal cruelty, the distressing images of animals being brutalised in importing countries are beamed into the living rooms of the Australian public with every new investigation. How many more times must we bear witness to such horror before the government intervenes? The animal abuse documented in these investigations would never be permitted on Australian soil, yet for decades the industry has continued to send live animals to countries regardless of the cruelty that likely awaits them. Time and time again, the live export industry has proven that it cannot be trusted to uphold animal welfare or be honest with the Australian public. Decisive action is long overdue. Please act to protect Australian animals from further brutality by ending this cruel trade once and for all. All live export must be banned.
2011-06-04 Sean Colgan Australia I want this stopped- I have never agreed with this practice- it may cause the farmers a small hiccup but it will give rise to Australian abbatoirs again, with correct practices, and bring jobs back to Australia as people of the world must eat.

Arent we so lucky we are the dominant species and yet are we able to claim intelligence and humanity?!
2011-06-02 Christine DAVIS AUSTRALIA Disgraceful and disgusting.Stop the transport of live animals to any other country. Imagine the pain and suffering of the animals, both on the journey and when they are butchered in an overseas country. There is no way that laws could be implemented and enforced in another country to ensure the animals are killed humanely.It is obvious those people just dont consider the animals feel pain,otherwise this would not have happened or there would be laws in place there to ensure it did not happen. Show some guts for a change and pull the plug on this practice.

As Dr Jones of the RSPCA said, "This is what Australian industry presence in Indonesia for two decades has achieved.

2011-06-01 Bruce & Jennifer Fisher Railway Parade, Balmoral Village Absolute barbarism - should be stopped IMMEDIATELY including the LYING by everyone involved in the trade - is there no shame and compassion anymore??!!
2011-06-01 Joy Clelland Australia The live animal (sheep and cattle) trade earns only one billion dollars a year. This could be covered this year by a one-off levy of $50 on 20 million Australians to shut it down immediately. The government needs to invest in chilled beef distribution points in coastal and inland Indonesia and regularly supply these points with Australian-killed chilled beef.
2011-06-01 Sarah Crowley Australia STOP LIVE ANIMAL EXPORT IMMEDIATELY. IT'S DESPICABLE.

2011-06-01 Cheryl Hall Australia It is important to stop livestock exported overseas. There is no need to transport livestock other than to proper slaughter house facilities within Australia, controlled by Australians, to Australian standards. We have no obligation to provide live meat to the middle east, indonesia or any where else, the meat is best butchered and packed on Australian shores for shipment around the world. The shipping, transportation and handling of livestock from the time they leave the ranch/farm where they are raised needs to be monitored, the trucking system and holding yards can be dodgey to say the least, to then herd frightened cattle, tired and injured from land journeys onto vessels at port ( Broome for one example), then to stay penned up at port for a minimum of 24 hrs. before a horrendous long sea journey is totally unacceptable legislation and must be ceased immediately. I have witnesses livestock at Broome recently, their conditions are cramped and they are standing up stacked in cattle trucks, urinating/pooing over each other, they fall over in the truck and trampled upon. There is no justification for this type of treatment, nor care for the livestock prior to the sea voyage, on board the vessel and definately not at their receiving end. This is not Australian to accept their treatment for so long knowing what the livestock go through, we should hang our heads in shame. Stop the treatment, setup proper slaughter houses on Australian shores, export the meat not the animal. Please stop and listen to Australians, please take a look at the livestock as they are being exported, the fear in their eyes, the state of their confinement and the conditions they are forced to endure.

2011-06-01 Christina Heath Australia The live animal trade is inhumane and barbaric. The Australian government has devasted country communities by the closure of local abbattoirs and the support of the hideous live animal trade. They couldn't give a stuff about all the people who have lost their jobs in local abbattoirs. Yet they use the loss of jobs in the live trade industry as justification for their continued support of the suffering of these beautiful and gentle animals. Hang your heads in shame Australian policticians.

2011-06-01 Teghan Boland Australia If the Indonesians want their cattle to be slaughtered the Islamic way, let them do it to their own, smaller cattle. Even then it is a way that is disgusting and is horrifically distressing and painful to the animal. Anyone who has been around cattle when another has been killed and there is blood around know that they are uncooperative and have a fear in them. These conditions are not by any means clean and hygienic. This is just downright in human and the old ways need to be stopped if they want to continue eating Australian Beef!

We must not export live animals (especially to third world countries), where they have no regard for animals. The animals should be slaughtered here in Australia and exported as frozen or chilled meat. Religious beliefs should not be accepted for cruely. STOP LIVE EXPORT NOW!!
2011-06-01 Adrian Hanks Australia Live export MUST stop. All animals should be slaughtered humanely in Australia and exported as chilled or frozen product. Footage on 4 Corners made my blood boil - it is a disgraceful practice!! and should stop immediately.

This government should be ashamed of itself, as a country we should be ashamed of ourselves, as I think we are, for allowing these exports to continue. The export dollar argument has no place and only makes the situation more ugly and unnaceptable. No human being has the right to condone animals being treated in this way. STOP IT NOW!

Kicking it's face... while poor animal already gave up to it's fate and just laid down...

2011-05-31 Mithila Naidu India I write to express my opposition to Australia's live export trade and to urge you to support the Live Animal Export Restriction and Prohibition Bill 2011 that will place special conditions on exporters of live animals and will see a complete ban on live animal export by July 2014. As you will be aware, numerous investigations have exposed the brutal treatment of Australian animals in countries in Asia and the Middle East. The recent uncovering of the cruelty inflicted on Australian cattle in Indonesia further evidences the complete failure of the live export industry to improve the treatment of the animals overseas. The international public is fed up with industry spin. The damning evidence from countless investigations makes it abundantly clear that the industry cannot be trusted to uphold animal welfare or be honest with the international public. The only appropriate course of action now is to ban this trade and prevent any more animals suffering such a needlessly cruel fate. This bill is an important opportunity to right a grievous wrong that has hung over us as a nation for decades. It is an opportunity to send a strong message to those who would harm animals that we do not condone animal abuse, and to establish ourselves as a compassionate and ethical society in the world community. It is worth noting that independent economic reports by ACIL Tasman also predict positive benefits to your economy from an end to the live trade. The international public does not need to see any more gruesome footage of this trade online, we simply need to see this trade stopped. I implore you to support the Live Animal Export Restriction and Prohibition Bill 2011 and do everything you can to stop the suffering of animals in the live export industry as soon as possible. You have the support of the Indian public behind you. Please make the right decision!

2011-05-31 ELAINE BURCH AUSTRALIA Please please please stop this barbaric treatment of these animals and treat them with the respect they deserve ,and stop sending them to countrys who have no respect for humans let alone regard for animals it sickens me to think we are allowing this to happen.

2011-05-31 Lyn Eccleston Australia After recent news items and publicity regarding cruelty to our beautiful animals we may finally see something done. Even though they may be food animals they deserve to be treated with respect and dignity, and not allowed to suffer in their sacrifice to us, that we may live on. Please halt the export of live animals and, in preference, create more accredited abattoirs on mainland Australia to process these animals for export, so that they may be put to death in a humane way.
2011-05-31 John Innes Australia The barbaric acts seen on 4 corners of the treatment of Australian livestock being slaughtered in Indonesia bring shame on all Australians.

2011-05-30 Tracie Scullion Australia i witnessed on the Four Corners program aired on 30/5/11 the most inhumane treatment of cattle imaginable which was supposedly the 'halal' method of slaughter. it certainly was not the painless method i have read it is and the poor animals even try to get up off the floor with their necks half slashed with a blunt saw..only to have their hindlegs slashed so they cant get up again..to say this is unnaceptable is the epitomy of an understatement. anyone who saw this program could never unsee what they have seen.
2011-05-30 Eliza Australia After watching the documentary on live export trade to Indonesia, I was disgusted with the inhumane treatment of animals. The Australian government should be doing more to stop the cruelty to animals.
2011-05-30 Jodi Barry Australia Even though I could not watch the four corners program (as it's far too distressful)I know of this barbaric, inhumane practice.

It is unacceptable to me and the majority of Australians that we can knowingly send these innocent animals to such cruel conditions. I am not a vegetarian I love Australian red meats but I cannot condone that animals are treated so badly for the sake of money! The practice of sending live exports needs to be completely stopped. If we need to send meats to Muslim countries who need the meat killed in a certain manner employ Muslims here in Australian to see that it is done to traditions Do not sell out our values for profits! We need our animals killed in a humane and kind way STOP sending livestock on long sea journeys just to be met by worse conditions, pain & torture. SHAME ON YOU & SHAME ON ALL AUSTRALIANS.

The level of mindless cruelty and barbarism is beyond words. I could not stomach the entire program as it was extremely distressing. I cannot understand what is wrong with people who want to deliberably exert this sort of EXTREME suffering on any living creature. Australia should not be doing business with countries who find this terror acceptable. BAN LIVE EXPORTS NOW.
2011-05-30 Amanda Anderson Australia I watched the 4 corners programme tonight and I am just appalled, that we as a 1st world nation, that our government is actively supporting the continued barbaric practice of live animal exports to 3rd world nations, that to not have the education, skills, money or resources to process livestock. If the welfare of the animal cannot be guaranteed from the time it leaves our shores to until the time is it 'processed' then it should be stopped.

2011-04-19 Jessica Lawrence Australia I have seen evidence of what happens to animals when they arrive at other countries. Countries do not have the same rules and regulations as they do in Australia and so animals we send especially to third world countries are abbused and mistreated before they are slaughtered or during slaughter. It is disgusting! Something needs to change!
2011-04-16 Amanda Critchley Australia Putting animals to this kind of cruelty and stress does not make sense, both in a humane way and the quality of meat. When animals get stressed they release toxins onto their muscles which is harmful to those who eat it! Think about how the beast is killed nest time you scoff down a steak.
2011-03-26 Louise Cuming Australia It is time the Australian Government accepted that they have to a degree a duty of care for every animal that is exported live and clearly you have failed. It is one of the cruelest industries Australia has and it is about time the almighty dollar, even if for the farmers is not put before the welfare of our livestock. Slaughering the livestock here and exporting frozen meat is an ethical and humane solution. 79% of Australians don't want live export yet the Government continues to allow this brutal trade. Remember people in Government work for the Public.
2011-03-23 Veronica Australia Also ban barbaric slaughter of animals hiding behind religious beliefs Jewish in particular & Islam. Australia wake up and make the tough law NOW. Symbolism using cruelty amounts to witchcraft and devil sorship. Ignorant unfeeling monsters. By yelling Allah or God you think it makes it alright. What a croc.

2010-12-10 Josephine Austin Britain Unbe-flaming-lievable. Are you a civilised country or are you just interested in money however it can be gained? How can your farmers bear to breed and raise these animals just to be transported in the most appalling conditions and then be slaughtered in a way that is illegal in Australia? Can you even imagine the terror and agony this must cause them? I am almost beyond words.... but not quite. Get this STOPPED, NOW.
2010-12-10 Jo Austin England Dear Senate, I am disgusted that you have resumed this appalling practice. Shame on you all. I and everybody I have spoken to about this has agreed to boycott all Australian products and a colleague has cancelled her impending holiday to your country as she is so upset. After the media coverage of the recent shark attacks in Egypt it is now common knowledge that carcasses from your exports were being thrown overboard and we all know what you are doing. The conditions these poor animals are transported in are beyond belief. You should be ashamed of yourselves but I don't imagine you have any conscience and don't care one little bit as long as you are all filling your wallets. Get it stopped, now, or face the backlash, and there will be one.

2010-12-04 Amanda Parker UK (formerly Australia) The export of Australian livestock to countries such as Kuwait is patently inhumane. We should all be objecting to this practice - it's not a matter of small-minded personal politics but a matter of basic human decency. Please consider implementing a ban on this trade as soon as possible.
2010-12-04 Lyndel Thomas Australia I am horrified at what is happening to our animals. It is bad enough that they have to suffer a long journey just to be killed, but must they suffer the cruel treatment that they receive on their arrival. I am disgusted and I will do anything it takes to help to end this disgusting and barbaric situation!!!

2009-10-29 jennifer asplin australia (I am asking you to stop the export of live animals. I realise there is an export market for Australia, and therefore there would probably be a financial loss incurred, but I think it is immoral to send animals into cultures where they are inhumanely treated. Also the stress of shipping these animals from Australia must have a significant impact on them. I am embarrassed to think that we, as a country, continue to allow animals to suffer just to make money, and to appease 'cultural and religious practices' which I personally find abhorent. It is hopefully illegal to slaughter animals in Australia in this fashion, although it probably does happen, and this also should be stopped. Once again, I ask that this inhumane practice be stopped. Thank you for your consideration.

2008-02-12 Bronte Turner Australia These animals are subjected to inhumane conditions resulting in unacceptably high death rates and suffering. Upon arrival, they suffer cruelty prior to and during slaughter - practices that are illegal in Australia
2008-02-12 Patricia Niblock Scotland UK It is utterly appalling that we have been turning a blind eye to the cruelty of transporting live animals for thousands of miles to foreign countries where the treatment of animals is so atrocious. It needs to be stopped immediately. Britain must start. After all New Zealand lamb is slaughtered prior to being frozen for the European market. STOP THIS APPALLING CRIME NOW

2007-12-05 Robin Chapple Australia Live cattle and sheep transport and export has been exposed repeatedly as involving cruel practices, producing high mortality rates. It is particularly problematic when animals are exported to areas with lesser animal welfare legislation than Australia. In 2005 over 35,000 sheep and 700 cattle died in transit. (www.pacat.org.au) Live export is also not in Australias best finacial interest. A report in 2000 by agricultural economists Dr Heilbron and Terry Larkin found that the live sheep export industry directly competes in the Middle East market with Australian chilled or frozen sheep meat industry products. The report also concludes that, if the sheep and cattle currently exported were instead processed in Australia, a further approximately $1.5 billion would be added to Australias gross domestic product, there would be around $250 million more in household income and around 10,500 full-]time jobs would be created. I would like to see the strengthening of national animal welfare legislation that prohibits cruelty and ensures the welfare of agricultural animals and end the live export of animals for slaughter overseas. The live export ban sould not extend to animals such as camels, horses and bulls for live use as long as conditions are maintained at the current high standard.

2007-12-02 Penny Johnson Australi Are Australian rabbits exported to China or not? Someone said the Chinese skinned them alive. This is so cruel. Also cutting animals throats four times, stabbing their eyeballs and cutting their tendons. The slaughterhouse workers are so cruel they stab the poor animal in the eye, and after its throat is cut, they cut the underside of its tail! The footage she smuggled out of Bassatin had international repercussions. It was major news in Egypt and Australia, prompted a flurry of diplomatic meetings between the two countries, and led to the suspension of live exports while the federal government figured out a compromise that would satisfy the powerful trade lobby, farmers, and a concerned public. Their key solution was two Memoranda of Understanding, in which Egypt agreed to treat Australian animals humanely, in accordance with international standards. After they were signed, trade resumed in October last year. Seven days later, a shipload of 40,000 sheep were sent to Egypt. White was there to meet them. Even though the government website states that "initial shipments to Egypt will be closely monitored for compliance with the MoUs", she says she was the only Australian there. Some of the sheep went to abattoirs; many others went to market-places, and were sold to locals for the religious festival Eid-al-Adha. White filmed struggling sheep being stuffed into the boots of cars or tied onto roof racks. She tailed cars, followed buyers down dark alleys, and watched sheep being dragged up stairs by the legs, before getting their throats cut in filthy communal toilets. Her footage proves, she says, that the MoUs are worthless. "Nothing has changed. The MoU has no legal standing. There are no animal protection laws in Egypt, no way of enforcing the MoU, and no penalties. It was just an agreement to get the animals back in there."

2007-10-13 Kathleen Nye Australia Australia is a nation of shame. Politicians, intent on obtaining profits for a few, are an ignominious blot on this country. In 2005, processed meat to Muslim countries totalled some $5.9 billion whilst live animal exports totalled less that $1 billion. Muslims do eat meat processed from our Halal abattoirs in Australia. The leaders of this nation are immoral and unethical in their greedy pursuits for profits, where they support the most heinous torture of sentient creatures. Thank you Minister McGauran and where is the voice of the opposition on the heinous cruelty and slaughter of our animals?? Rock apes!!

2007-09-05 patty mccollim United States During transportation of animals, they are subjected to inhumane conditions resulting in unacceptably high death rates and suffering. Upon arrival, they suffer extreme cruelty and barbarism prior to and during slaughter (these practices are illegal in Australia). This is cruel and inhumane. "Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages." -Thomas A. Edison "The assumption that animals are without rights, and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance, is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality." -Arthur Shopenhauer

2007-01-02 Kate Nattrass USA The horrible suffering these animals endure must be stopped as it is a reflection of our own lack of compassion, integrity and ethics to allow these things to occur in a world where alternatives exist. Please regulate animal transports to provide for the welfare of these sentient animals.

2006-09-01 Dianne Arton Australia There is no moral basis for live export. We can humanely slaughter animals on our own shore in line with other countries expectations eg. halal. So why do we continue to claim to care more about foeta humans than all living beings?
2006-09-01 DR Nik Taylor Australia All animals have an intrinsic right to be treated with respect. The barbarism of live exports contravenes this right and many others and must be stopped. Furthermore state sanctioned acts of violence against animals may well encourage human acts of aggression and violence and thus need to be stopped on BOTH human and animal welfare levels.

Sometimes it makes me ashamed to be human because of the atrocities that we (our species) do to other species and the destruction of our planet. The human being is THE MOST DESTRUCTIVE SPECIES of any on the planet Earth. We alone have caused the most number of any species of plants or animals to go extinct than any other. And this happens every second, every minute, every day. WE have contributed to and caused Global Warming. WE have DESTROYED MORE NATURAL HABITAT than any other species, making it harder for other species to survive in the wild. And this causes so many species to encroach upon "our" towns, villages, and lands, when in fact, it is US who are doing the trespassing upon THEIR lands. And what do we do when these poor animals come looking for food to survive? Kill them because they're hungry. They simply don't have any more habitat or hunting grounds because WE'VE taken it away for farming, neighborhoods, towns, logging, etc. This has GOT TO STOP! We need to find a way to co-exist with animals and plants somehow, and not continue in the present methods. It is barbaric and cruel, and causes the animals enormous pain. Have you no feelings at all? What if it were you in those cages? It could be, someday. Maybe then, you'd be begging for someone to end your suffering. And do you think that anyone would care enough to plead your case, much less answer? Think about it. Think very hard about it. Because the future of our Earth depends on what you do NOW, for WE are the caretakers of our planet, and what we do to the Earth impacts the generations to come. If we screw it up, the results sometimes don't show for many years to come. Indicator species (frogs, birds, etc.) are already telling us that we've done too much damage to the Earth and we need to correct it NOW. So stop what you're doing with the livestock and find a new way to handle the situation. PLEASE!!!! The Tazmanian Tiger is already extinct, and the Dingo is endangered. The Tazmanian Devil is located only on Tazmania, after being eradicated from Australia. What other Australian species do you want to lose?

2006-04-24 Diana Hartig Germany The EU has recently, and after years of petitioning, cut the financial support for live exports of animals destined for slaughter. As positive as this is, it means that this practice will relocate more and more to and via countries that still allow and back it - i.e. where it is still profitable. I appeal to the Australian Government to not continue to support such live exports from its own country. You keep an atrocity alive who's time has come. You may think that what happens to these animals once they have left Australian soil and the protection of Australian animal welfare legislation is not your concern. But it is ! Like everyone who eats meat is guilty of the murder committed in his name, you are guilty of the unspeakable suffering that is visited upon these creatures on their way to a cruel end. Please ban live exports !

2006-03-19 Mrs M Green Australia These innocent and hapless animals are subject to the whims of human beings which, considering the terrible treatment that they suffer at the hands of live exporters, are intolerable and totally unacceptable!

2006-03-01 Karen Dennis-Smither England I am not really surprised to learn how the animals suffer. The human race can be the cruellest species to its own kind so what it does to other species should not be new knowledge. People who supposedly care for animals should insist on them being slaughtered nearest their source. If you can't guarantee humane treatment when animals leave your care, you shouldn't be entitled to have them in the first place. All our animals only ever leave our property when they are dead or in the case of farm livestock they are sent to the nearest abbatoir, transported by local, well-known people. If all the animals that are suffering in the world were able to make us hear, the sound echoing around the globe would be deafening. Animals really do suffer in silence. enter comments here)

2006-02-26 Morgan Smith Australia The people who allow this sick gahstly treatment of animals, who allow the live export of these innocent souls are just as barabric as the people (like the ones I saw on 60 mins last night) who are torchering the animals, you may not be actually stabbing those animals in there eyes or slicing there tendons heartlessly but you may as well be.
2006-02-26 Lee McKay Australia An aborrhent practice that should be stopped immediately. It brings shame to Australia and Australian famers.

2006-02-26 Jane Macintyre AUSTRALIA I support this petition that calls upon the members of the Senate to immediately, and without delay, ban the live export of Australian livestock
2006-02-25 Anne-Marie Dawson Australia I live near where live animals are brought by road to await live export from Brisbane port. The sounds comming from these helpless animals is dreadful! It is distressing to hear and see their scared cries and eyes. They have travelled many hours, in unbearable conditions, heat, dust, squashed on top of each other, no air, water, bumped and imjured and can sense the danger ahead of them. You only need to see this once in your life to know this is the truth. If we as humans, with beating hearts like these animals, and with the power to stop this barbarack practice, we have a duty to help them. They are born in our country, Australia, and are our responsibility! Do not send them to their death in an inhumane and cruel manner witch is ILLEGAL in Australia. You, as members of our Senate, who are put there by us to give us voices must listen, repeat and honour reasonable requests now. It is 2006 and we must stop these practices - STOP LIVE- EXPORT OF ANIMALS. And while I have your attention - STOP, IMMEDIATELY, ALL WHALE KILLING. As voter and tax payer I expect to be heard, paid attention to, and courtisely replied to, as is my right as a human being (read Basic Human Rights) and (mostly) proud Australian, who is also your employer, and expects all employees to act as instructed. Thank you. Anne-Marie Dawson, 29 Bolan Street, Balmoral, Brisbane 4171, Queensland.
2006-02-25 Kimberly Fung Hong Kong It is simply very selfish and not ethical at all for some people to let animals suffer from pains,hungers, uncomfortable, etc, just because they believe the taste of the meat will be fresher if animals are import ALIVE. Same for a lot of Japanese people, who like to put boiling oil on jumping fish, and then eat these fish alive due to fresher tastes; or cut sharks' fin, and then dump these bleeding sharks back into the sea. How can these people build their enjoyments on other creatures' great painful? Think of what will they feel if they were these animals? Simply selfish souls!

2006-02-25 Paul Tapp Australia (enter comments here)We are a western civilisation with an abiding respect for our animals, even with stringent slaughterhouse measjures to minimise their fear and suffering. Why should we turn our eyes to the east when it comes to sheep? The cruel, inhumane and disgusting way in which we treat our exported sheep, detracts from our standing and humaneness, as individuals and collectively as a humane race. Please push this matter into a conscience vote in our federal parliament.Abort the practise of live sheep exports!
2006-02-24 Tracy Schwalger Australia We have all seen what happened with the sheep, and i was physically sick when i saw on the news what happens with the cows, this should be stopped.

2006-02-22 jeannette lyon australia God gave us authority over animal kingdom, He blessed them and Adam named them. He certainly did not give us authority to bully, torture, disrespect His creation. Greed has taken over and farm animals are at man's mercy. How would you like to be a sheep for awhile and go through all the miseries they go through? I bet you would change your mind pretty quickly. Be righteous and stop the cruelty.

Australia the caring country - not where some animals are concerned.
2006-02-19 June Cowley Australia I am sickened by the barbaric way our live animal exports are treated. As a country we should not close our eyes to the barbaric way they are slaughtered and treated. Where is our humanity!!!!

Everyone pass this petition onto your family and friends - lets get these votes up.
2006-02-19 Kristina Australia I'm not normally one to sign petitions, but a 10 second ad for next Sunday's "60 Minutes" program (channel 9 for the Victorians) featuring a story on the cruel and totally unnecessary pre-slaughter practices in some countries that receive live export Australian cattle, has left me in tears. We absolutely MUST stop the export of live animals from this country.

God gave us meat to eat, if we wanted to.But to have them suffer as well,..... I certainly hope that those at whose hands animals suffer, are not brought back by God into a world somewhere, where those animal handlers must wait their fate under duress and suffering.

These middle eastern people are the most crulest beings on the planet and we should not sell our animals to them for torture. Sheep are just like a labrador for Gods sake, just because they have little brains why do people treat them with such intense disreguard. would we do these things to a dog? and what is the difference? Please you hold the power to stop this disgusting way of treating helpless defenceless animals. Louise watson

2005-09-23 Sheila Bindman USA Please ban the live-export of Australian animals; they are subjected to inhumane conditions resulting in high death rates and suffering. Upon arrival they suffer extreme cruelty and barbarism prior to and during slaughter- practices that are illegal in Australia. I cannot imagine why anyone would want to put any live being thru unimaginable pain and cruelty. Think about it.!!!!!
2005-09-23 Jennifer Roy USA No living being or creature should have to undergo such cruelty. Why kind of society are we when we makes the concious decsion to allow such suffering to occur when it is not necessary for this to occur.

2005-09-19 Trisha Roberts Australia "What do they know - all these scholars, all these philosophers, all the leaders of the world? They have convinced themselves that man, the worst transgressor of all the species, is the crown of creation. All other creatures were created merely to provide him with food, pelts, to be tormented, exterminated. In relation to them, all people are Nazis; for the animals it is an eternal Treblinka." Isaac Bashevis Singer, 1978 Nobel Prize Winner

2005-09-13 silvia bioli italia the export oflive animals is cruelty.STOP!
2005-09-13 Sophie Ribergaard Australia I think it’s a barbaric and blatant act of cruelty that needs to be stopped. People intentionally bring innocent creatures into this world therefore immediately have a duty of care to uphold towards these animals. What kind of cruel, heartless, callous, insensitive, malicious individuals can inflict this kind of horrific torment on a fellow living, breathing creature and then have the balls to, in whatever way, try and pass of what they are doing as justified. There should be tougher penalties on animal abuse; the sadistic bastards who get off on this kind of cruelty should be put in prison where they belong. If someone is capable of harming another creature what makes people think that they aren’t capable of harming a human being. Cruelty is still cruelty wether it be inflicted on humans or animals and the same tough penalties should be handed down for both. Today’s society has a blatant disregard for this sort of thing; we are a blissfully ignorant group of individuals who live in a world where people who can’t seem to or intentionally choose not to, provide the basic care required in owning an animal, are ultimately, allowed to have children. Child abuse, animal abuse, domestic violence, it’s all the same, intentionally harming or neglecting those that are unable to look after or defend themselves. I think we as Australians need to wake up, get off our ever widening arses and do something about it. And it’s us as the people that need to take a stand, our politicians couldn’t give a rat’s arse about the cause, or any other as a matter of fact that doesn’t end up, in some way, providing benefits to themselves or the size of their wallets. At the end of the day it just doesn’t pay for them to invest money into saving the lives of innocent, abused and neglected animals. The practice of live animal export is an intentional and ignorant form of animal abuse which needs to be stopped immediately. Keep Australia’s animals in Australia!

SINCE ARRIVING FROM THE UK I HAVE BEEN APPAULED AT THE AMOUNT OF ANIMAL CRUELTY THAT OCCURS IN AUSTRALIA AND MORE DISTURBING STILL THE ATTITUDE OF MANY AUSTRALIANS I HAVE MET TO ANIMAL CRUELTY AND THEIR DISPLAY OF COMPLETE IGNORANCE AND LACK OF AWARENESS TO ANIMAL CRUELTY. IT ALSO SEEMS THAT THEIR TOLLERANCE LEVEL OR ACCEPTANCE FOR CRUELTY IS FAR HIGHER THAN I EVER IMAGINED. PLEASE LET US CHANGE THIS THROUGH EDUCATION AND AS A GOVERNMENT YOU MUST MAKE A STAND BUT IN ORDER FOR THIS TO HAPPEN YOU MUST BE SENDING STRONG MESSAGES OUT THAT ANIMAL CRUELTY OF ANY KIND WILL BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY AND PUNNISH THE PERPETRATORS SEVERLEY. PROVE THAT YOU ARE COMPASSIONATE AND STOP THIS VILE TRADE IMMEDIATELY. I DO LOVE THIS COUNTRY BUT I REALLY DO FEEL THAT AS A GOVERNMENT YOU ARE FAR FROM DOING ENOUGH TO CHANGE THE ATTITUDES OF YOUR PEOPLE BY NOT ACTING APPROPRIATELY WHEN IT COMES TO ACTS OF GROSS CRUELTY TO ANIMALS.

I could not believe my eyes when I saw the pitiful condition of those animals and the lack of interest by this government. When you see helpless animals subjected to such cruelty you have to wonder what is wrong with this world? I am not an animal activist, I would not even call myself an extremist, but just a decent person that cannot stand to see such cruelty inflicted upon an animal that has no ability to help itself from the senseless cruelty from humans. Please try to use your position to make a difference and make some changes

2005-04-15 isobel cowan England The utter horror of exporting live animals is so deeply, deeply unpleasant - that it is, in fact - unspeakable. That this continues beggers belief - that they are voiceless and treated - not as sentien beings - but as commodities brings the darkest shame to us all!

So if we are talking money (which is always the issue with you greedy bastards)why dont you export them in better conditions so they dont all die in cramped spaces with no water before they have even got to the slaughter house? How would you like to be cramped up like that? Squashed in with your family to slowly watch them die. Id like to see that happen to you but not those poor innocent sheep!

2005-03-07 Lambchop Australia Sheep are cute cuddly animals just like any other pet. They don't deserve to be beaten, stabbed, left in hot temperatures without any cold water and good food to eat. All the government cares about is the money the get out of it. Saudi Arabian importers require sheep's appearance to be perfect in order to suit their ritual slaughter. So a white fluffy adorable sheep to have it's throat slashed for the ritual. What a waste of a good sheep and if they aren't perfect they are shipped back out for another 16 weeks on a stinking hot ship. Imagine how we would feel if we were put in a suitation like the sheep! No Water, No food, No good treatment, Beatings, stabbing, No sheep should be treated like this.

2005-01-21 Janhett Tayler Windglows UNITED STATES Animals are sacred and full of innocent Light Energy and deserve to be cared for and loved, not taken control of and being taken out of their natural habitat then taken like they are nothing of value, made to be transported against their will under conditions that are threatening to their lives, sold for money, all the while not being properly cared for, starved, and left to suffer, tortured or killed. I was an animal health technologist years and years ago and can tell you right now that I have seen just about everything done to animals by humans, and have seen them suffer and die, get killed, and suffer from various types of diseases. If the people that are doing these horrible atrocities to the animals do not stop, all of this will come back to them and it will be their Karma payed back to them just like everyone has, so please be aware not of only what you are doing to the animals, but be mindful of what kind of reward you will get for this, back to you again, for what you send out always comes back to you. Heed these words, and think about what you are doing. If you do not care, then mabie this is a good time to start!!!!!

2004-09-10 Laurence Glennie England i agree with someone further down the list that says they should at least be killed prior to shipping. having the attitude of "were going to eat them anyway, why not be as cruel as we like" is wrong, and im sure even non-vegetarians should be able to empathize and stop the suffering of these animals.

2004-06-03 Satrina Brandt Australia The practice of exporting live animals is blatant cruelty. Not only are the transport conditions inhumane but the risk of exposure to disease is high and the methods of slaughter at their destination does not satisfy Australian standards and is often barbaric. How can the Australian government possibly justify this cruelty to animals?
2004-06-02 Katie Nash Australia Live export is an issue that needs decisive action. There are halal butchers in Sydney and other areas so there is no excuse for continuing to transport livestock to the middle east and other regions.

In 2002, more than 73,000 sheep and 17,000 cattle died on board export vessels due to disease and starvation etc. How is this justified and how can the Australian Government be immune from feeling responsible? I know that if these animals were treated as such in a backyard that the RSPCA would be called and the offender charged, so how is it 'ok' for animals to be treated as such on ships?

Not only are we taking thier lives, we are causing them to suffer cruely before killing them. I know that abatures have codes of killing. one example of this is to ensure one animal does not see another one getting slautered. it is blatently obvious to me that we NEED a similar rule to stop animal being crammed in a boat without room to move and animals dying all around them. Just because the countries we are exporting to have lesser morales and pathetic human/animal right laws does not mean that we should lower ourselfs to thier level. lead by example. i believe in this country. there are so many things that this govenment does right. please dont let me down with this...

2004-04-06 Jenny Banks Australia All living creatures feel pain - in the year 2004 our society must recognise and be responsible for the cruelty it inflicts on our animals.
2004-04-05 Dean Tan Australia To the members of the Senate. I write in order to educate you on the inhumane treatment animals are exposed to due to Live Export Trade. Further more do you Senators know that when sheep and cattle are exported, jobs are also being exported to overseas countries? It is simple logic and maths. Abattoirs are closing and money is being lost. Think of regional abattoirs closing and unemployment skyrocketing when question time comes up!!! Stop the cruelty to animals and human unemployment in Australia.
2004-04-04 Roksanda Ristich Australia If a religion permits such cruelty to other species that share our planet, then that religion should be seriously questioned. Religious beliefs and customs should only be respected and tolerated as long as no one gets hurt in the process - whether that one is human or non-human. No religion, custom or livelihood should be allowed to remain sacrosanct if it involves suffering to another living being - whether that being is human or non-human.

People in sauidi Arabia say that they do not have the refrigeration to accept frozen meat yet the sacrifices are made in slaughter houses and are refrighertated before being given to the poor

2004-03-28 Donna Dabala Australia The live export trade has to stop. By maitaining this cruel and unnecssary practice (given modern food transport and reridgeration methods) we, Australia, are complicit in the inhumanity shown towards these animals in their places of destination - inhumanity that we would not condone here.

2004-03-23 Nicolette Plant Australia Obviously money and material wealth means more to fat ugly buisness men and woman than being a human!! imagin what your kids will think when they know you killed innocent animals after you basicly tortured them for months.. your lucky these animals can't do the same thing to you!! you ignorant "beings" would be the first ones to ask..."why me?" well, i believe what goes around comes around..and when it does, and when you ask "why me".. you know why! i suggest you all stop being so cruel and inhumane.. just because they cant speak the same language as you, they have feelings, you might as well be racist.. you probably are. If the world is against racism, why are they accepting this, as far as im concerened this is way worse... WAKE UP!!
2004-03-14 Joel Brophy australia What is Life? Life is everything from coming from your moms womb till your last breath of air. Us our humans have pain killers and all types of drugs to get up through pain. Why should Animals such as sheep and cattle have to put up with induring pain just to save supplys money. Though animals are here for us to eat and make us grow they should not have to be subject to large amounts of pain just because the demand for them. People need to grow a conscience and start standing up for animal rights

As a farmer I have taken steps to ensure that my animals take a short trip in a truck to the closest Abattoirs in the state of Victoria. Live export will never get my sheep. Never. I am also hoping to encourage other farmers to do the same as myself. Marilyn Mangione.(enter comments here)

2004-02-03 Lisa Milhollan USA Cruelty and suffering should not be allowed in a civilized world. Regardless if the animal is to sadly end up on someone's dinner table, they should NOT have to suffer. The slaughtering of these animals that you export are done with methods that your own country deems illegal, why would you send them somewhere to be treated as your country has decided is wrong? Please do not allow this to continue!

2004-01-25 Dr. Andrew Knight Australia As a veterinarian who has studied this issue I am certain that live exports, followed by feedlotting and slaughtering to normal Middle-Eastern standards, are both inimical to the welfare of the animals involved, and also so offensive to widely accepted standards of good animal care, that this industry would be immediately ended were most Australians and politicians aware of the conditions these animals endure. The live export trade should be phased out in favour of a chilled meat export trade in the short-term future.

2004-01-22 Lisa Rex and Nicola Hillier Great Britain It isn't fair that make-up is tested on animals before use by humans. Animals shouln't be used for testing at all because they too are living things just like us. Why do people abuse their animals to bring themselves entertainment?

2004-01-18 Luis Gonzalez usa We need to stop treating animals like products. As human beings we have a responsibility to not walk away from such atrocities (we created them after all). We are in no position to judge animals as "lesser-beings". There is no reasonable criteria for such a judgement. Even on the basis of something like "how much more conscious we are than other creatures"...that is not acceptable since the phenomenon of consciousness is not understood. We are very arrogant creatures capable of solving difficult Physics problems but we are also capable of slaughtering 5 million Jews. Let's re-think our attitudes towards animals. Maybe, if we can learn how to treat the Earth and other living creatures, we can dream of world peace...otherwise, our world is doomed. Thanks

2004-01-18 Brenda Kemp Australia There is no reason for Australia to continue its live export. Currently Australia exports around 60 thousand tonnes of frosen carcass meat to the Middle East--so much for them not having refrigeration. This market could be easily expanded, this would see greater economic returns for Australia, increased employment opportunities in rural and regional Australia--but more importantly, animal welfare standards could be applied, monitored, reviewed, and enforced. Ban live exports.
